The interpretation of "catch and release" by FWC may also have other implications not yet realized. For example, FWC states that "temporary possession of a fish for the purpose of measuring it to determine compliance with the minimum or maximum size requirements of this chapter shall not constitute harvesting such fish, provided that it is measured immediately after taking, and immediately returned to the water free, alive, and unharmed if undersize or oversize." Under FWC's interpretation of possession and catch-and-release, any handling of a recreational species during closed seasons (e.g., snook and spotted seatrout), would be illegal. A person catching a snook, for example, during a closed season is not going to measure the fish to determine if the fish is within the harvest slot limit, so any handling of the fish for photographs, weighing, or other purposes related to catch and release would be illegal. This example underscores the need for a more progressive interpretation of "catch and release" by FWC.
